Colored purple and trimmed with gold, the Remington Pro Thermaluxe appears like an extravagance hair dryer. Coming in at less than $40, it really is surprisingly affordable, especially given its impressive performance.

The Thermaluxe is a full-size hair dryer that combines thermal technology with ceramic heat. It really is suited to use on many hair types and works especially well with dry or fine hair. Ceramic heat emits negative ions to dry hair faster and smooth frizz. Complementary to ceramic heat, thermal technology provides constant, even heat at every setting to increase the hair dryer’s performance and minimize harm to your hair.

The hair dryer comes with an 1,875-watt motor and weighs 1.7 pounds. Its 7-foot cord is tangle-free for optimal maneuverability. The Pro Thermaluxe includes a removable endcap to enable you to clean its filter. It includes more accessories than any other hair dryer we tested, providing two concentrators, a diffuser and three sectioning clips. The hair dryer’s motor and cord are professional grade.

The Remington hair dryer has three heat settings and two speed settings. Like every blower we tested, it includes a cool-shot button to close the hair shaft and assist you to set your look. Its air speed ranges from 24.1 to 30.7 feet per second, and it includes a temperature selection of 80 to 169 degrees. Although its attachments are hard to eliminate, they are durable and attractive.

While its handle includes a comfortable grip, a few of our testers thought the dryer’s weight was unbalanced. “I believe I would get sick and tired of holding this for lengthy,” one tester told us.

But another person in our panel thought the dryer was smartly designed. “I like that one,” she said. “It feels as though one I’d buy.”

Whether or not their hair was fine or thick, your testers with straight hair commented that the Remington Pro Thermaluxe was effective on the hair type, plus they liked the blower’s air speed and temperature.

Among our testers with frizzy hair appreciated the hair dryer’s quality but thought its air speed was too fast. She also said the Remington dryer was too loud. At 83.4 decibels, it isn’t the quietest hair dryer we reviewed, but half of the models we tested make more noise. The tester recommended the Panasonic Nanoe, which includes both less air speed and less volume, as the very best hair dryer for curls.

The Remington Pro Thermaluxe’s four-year warrantee is among the finest warranties designed for hair dryers in the house market. (The Conair InfinitiPRO and BaByliss Nano Titanium are also covered for four years.) Consumer support is available by phone and email, and our experience with Remington was excellent.
